    Your confusion here stems from a basic lack of understanding concerning what the Church actually teaches regarding these two issues. According to your present (mis)understanding of these doctrines, they appear to contradict one another. However, correctly understood, there is in fact no contradiction whatsoever. Again, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

    Popes do a whole lot of going over each other; it's funny how God cannot contradict Himself in Scripture but seems to do it all the time in the papacy.
    For example...?

    There was a succession and then the Church went and assumed a position within it- and then the Dark Ages began.
    Now go ahead and post your proof for this bare assertion.
